Shaw's Career Stats, Wages, and Injury.
Shaw was initially a member of Southampton Youth System, and he made his debut for the club back in January 2012. He was offered the contract in May the same year. His impressive run at Southampton made a great name for himself which that led him to get signed to the mighty red devils Manchester United in 2014. He was signed for the then record transfer fee for a teenager, which was £30 million.
On June 2014, he was signed by the red devils for four years and made his debut in the first match of Manchester United's pre-season against LA Galaxy, a game which Manchester United won 7 goals to nil with Shaw playing 45 minutes.
His performances for the club in the season enabled him to get shortlisted for the Golden Boy Award, an award that is given to Europe's most productive player under the age of 21. That was just the beginning of what would later turn out to a thriving career as his career stats suggest he has got way more talent than people have seen him put on display on the field.

However, during the opening game of the Champions league on 15 September 2015, he was caught by a sliding tackle from Hector Moreno which caused a double leg fracture and Shaw was provided with Oxygen and was taken off on a stretcher. That threatened his career a lot.
But given the fierce competitor he is, he returned to training in April 2016 and during his rehab, he showed tremendous character which the then boss Louis van Gaal explained in such words.
"He is already here every day, walking with a brace and starting his rehabilitation. It is unbelievable,"
"But he has a long way to go. At the moment, the progress is steep, but at the end it will be flat and that is difficult to maintain your mentality. But now he is fantastic."
Also, he shared a picture of him walking with a brace on his legs to keep the fans up to date on his recovery path.
His grit and dedication allowed him to recover quick and on 7 August 2016; he made his comeback against Leicester City, a game which his team won and lifted the 2016 FA Community Shield 2 goals to 1. And although he has been having some fitness issues, he gives it all on the field whenever he has donned a football shirt.
Speaking of his salary and wages, he earns 70,000 pounds a week. Manchester United is the richest club in football, and a man of such quality deserves to be paid in such amount.
He is great in real football, but even in FIFA 17, he has a great rank, and those who have him on their teams must surely be loving it.
